Thank you Fellow Democrats and Allies,
Each and every one of you had a critical role in yesterday’s victory. You worked as a team. You supported ALL the candidates and made it possible to mobilize and come together. You phone banked, canvassed, put up signs, entered data, prepared mailers, gave rides, poll watched, handed out ballots at Trickster Gallery, picked up or prepared food, shopped for supplies and did whatever was needed to insure our success. We got people off the couch and into the voting booth.
Enjoy today but remember we can’t let up. We have enormous challenges ahead and it will require all of our efforts to protect our Democracy. We are stronger together and yesterday proved that. Thank you and get ready for the next phase.

Fantastic turn out for the Annual Meet the Candidates Breakfast held by the Schaumburg Area Democratic Organization. The event was held at Chandler’s Chop House in Schaumburg and it was standing room only. Committeeman, Michael C. Cudzik made it happen. We are grateful for his tireless efforts to grow the Democratic Party in the Northwest suburbs and if this crowd was any indication, he has been immensely successful.Read More

Schaumburg Area Democrats Labor Day Parade had a GREAT turnout – about 150 people including: Elected officials: Raja Krishnamoorthi, Laura Murphy, Fred Crespo, Michelle Mussman, Kevin Morrison (running for Cook County Commissioner), Nafees Rahman (running for Schaumburg President), Streamwood Park Commissioner Raees Yawer, Committeeman Michael Cudzik and the JB Pritzker Staff. The Jesse White Tumblers were phenomenal.
After the parade, Mike Murray hosted a BBQ afterwards which the Pita House catered. The food was delicious and plentiful and when the last meal was served the skies opened up but not before we were all able to get home safely. So, it was a great parade even though it was HOT, HOT, HOT we didn’t get rained out.
We thank all who braved the elements to walk with us and we thank you especially for your enthusiastic support.
"I am proud to endorse JB Pritzker to be the next governor of my home state of Illinois, and let me tell you why. It's simple, JB gets things done. When folks said Illinois couldn't be a leader in creating high-tech jobs, JB thought we could, and he started a tech incubator that's helped entrepreneurs create hundreds of new companies and more than 7,000 good jobs.”Read More
